- AboutJenny Floravita was born to be an artist. She began her studies in painting, drawing, music and dance as a small child, excelling in all. Her life in the San Francisco Bay Area afforded her great exposure to the arts. Jenny won numerous awards as a young artist including four California Governor’s Medallions and four California State Seals, two each for art and dance. After receiving several scholarships, Jenny went on to study and receive her formal art degree through University of California, Santa Cruz. She lived and worked in Santa Cruz as a graphic designer and fine art painter for several years before re-locating to her family’s home town in the Delta. Since 2000, Jenny Floravita’s fine art career has blossomed. She has exhibited in numerous galleries and high-end art festivals. She paints island scenes and tropical flowers in both oil and watercolor. Jenny’s journey in reverse glass painting began in the early summer of 2007 and since then she has added her beautiful custom glass painted chandeliers to her line of oil and watercolor paintings.

Circles of Promise is an abstract, reverse painted chandelier featuring my new contemporary iron fixture design. The coloring in this painted chandelier is very vibrant. I am the artist and my name is Jenny Floravita. All of my reverse painted chandeliers are painted by me in my studio in the San Francisco Bay Area. My signature abstract painting style has become as loved by my collectors as my exotic flower chandeliers.
My glass bowls are created here in my studio. My new iron fixture style incorporates the swirl and vortex element that runs throughout my abstract themed chandeliers. My abstract reverse painted chandeliers are works of art for the ceiling. The rods that hold the glass are not lamp rods—they are solid steel rods that we fabricate here in my studio. This is a clean design that I’ve been working on for some time and it’s very relevant to my abstracts.
A lot of work and craftsmanship goes into each of my reverse painted chandeliers. Painting and creating these glass chandeliers unique works is a labor of love. 24″ diameter refers to the size of the glass bowl and is a very good size for most people and in fact, it is a standard size for many bowl-shaped chandeliers. I’d also like to point out that because my glass bowls are made here in my studio, they are a whole different animal to what you see in the big home depot type stores—my glass bowls are 1/4″ thick! They aren’t wafer thin.
If you look at this reverse painted chandelier’s page here you will see 21 detail images. The reason why I’m showing so many detail images is because Circles of Promise is a very complex chandelier painting. Lighting is hard to photograph so know that my reverse painted chandeliers are even lovelier in person.
If you are looking for a contemporary, decorative lighting fixture then know that all of my reverse painted chandeliers are original works of art in their own right—no two are alike.
I’m so excited!!! This has been a long time coming but I’m finally able to say that I have a new forged-fixture design option for my abstract reverse painted glass chandeliers. The fixture I’m showing here is my new Circles of Color chandelier. You can see more details on it’s page: http://floravitalights.com/portfolio/circles-of-color-abstract-reverse-painted-chandelier
The swirl element ties into my swirl and circles theme. It would look lovely on my Vortex piece as well and can also be paired with any of my other painted chandeliers if you want a reverse painted glass chandelier for your room yet need it to be a contemporary lighting fixture. It’s contemporary and clean in design, hangs lovely and gets away from the Tuscan and traditional scrolled iron designs of my other fixtures.
When you are a busy working artist as I am, every new idea can take a while before a design materializes into a piece you can touch. As clean and simple as this design is, I spent the better part of this past half year thinking about it and drawing different options before I was able to make it into the iron fixture you see today. The objective was to design a fixture that would fit my contemporary abstract chandeliers that would have a main element that would tie into the motifs that I like to use in my glass paintings. You will see more of these fixtures accompanying my abstract reverse painted glass chandeliers.
